Durham, whose appointment is effective Nov. 4, will oversee the Office of Financial Aid and partner across campus to lead and support the overall university financial aid strategy and execution.

She succeeds Pamela Fowler, who retired in June.

Durham will work with a team of nearly 50 financial aid practitioners, including representatives in the schools and colleges.

“I am particularly impressed with her experiences and commitment to leading a successful team, building relationships across campus, and providing a positive experience for students, families and staff,” said Kedra Ishop, vice provost for enrollment management.

“I am excited to couple her with the strength of the University of Michigan and our collective commitment to serving the needs of our students and institution.”

Durham brings nearly 20 years of experience in higher education, most recently as director of financial aid at New York University, and previously as the director of enrollment services at Penn State Schuylkill, a campus of The Pennsylvania State University.

Prior to that, she was financial aid and admissions coordinator at Penn State Schuylkill, and started her career as an accountant at Penske Truck Leasing.  Durham also served as an adjunct professor, teaching courses in public relations and marketing, and the first-year experience at Penn State Schuylkill.

Durham earned a bachelor’s degree in professional accountancy and a master’s degree in public administration, both from Penn State Harrisburg.
